Safety aside, I would venture that 95% of all boats 20 years or older have coated lifelines that have never been replaced. I do think the non coated or stainless wire does LOOK better. But if all these older boats have coated lifelines and I have personally not heard of any stories ( not that there aren't any ) of failures with coated lifelines. Is this just another money making idea generated by the Marine ( $$$$$ ) industry ?
I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
